Lightweight roof eaves overhangs can be easily achieved.
No need to trim rafter ends
Where soffits are loadbearing significant airtight eaves insulation can be achieved.
Thin roof eaves and soffits are often required for either structural or aestetic reasons – and with 3-and 5-player panels used as self-supporting eaves overhangs, it is possible to rapidly construct eaves with spans from 1.0 m to 1.6 m, and with ready to use surfaces.
NWLarch Ceiling Diaphragm Panels
3 - and 5 - layer panel
Achievement of roof panels which meet the requirements of DIN 1052:Part 1
Use in domestic buildings, even where joist spacings are in excess of 830 mm
Floor stiffness greater than achievable with OSB-4
Superior sound transmission properties between floors.
For the transmission of horizontal forces within a building, it is possible to use 3-and 5-layer panels in ceiling constructions, to act as a diaphragm
NWLarch Roof Sections / Hall Construction
3- and 5- layer panel
Achievements of roofs panels in accordance with DIN 1052: Part 1.
With panel sizes of 5 m to 6m long, the main truss spacings can be opened out (with panel butt -joints on the truss beams)
The greater panel thicknesses of 42 mm to 80 mm make it possible to achieve self-supporting panels without the need for timber supports.
3-and 5-layer panels can replace the need for steel ties and reinforcing rods in roof construction.
3- and 5 layers panels combine the natural beauty of wood with the extra loadbearing strength!
